Hanwha launches cameras with AI capabilities

Hanwha Vision has launched a range of PTZ PLUS cameras with AI capability for accurate detection and classification. The AI PTZ PLUS range is designed for large open areas such as airports, car parks, stadiums and also perimeter protection. The inclusion of AI with these cameras reduces false alarms and allows them to accurately classify objects including people, faces and vehicles.

The object detection and classification enables operators to quickly search for footage of specific objects which makes smart forensic search highly efficient. Combined with intelligent video analytics, operators can monitor for objects such as people entering and exiting a pre-defined area such as a restricted office within an airport.

Deep-learning AI means irrelevant objects like trees, clouds or animals – which can commonly be the cause of false alarms with standard motion detection technology – are ignored by the cameras.

One notable feature of the X Series AI PTZ Plus cameras is its auto-tracking functionality driven by the upgraded AI engine. With the ability to distinguish between individuals and vehicles, the cameras automatically lock onto desired targets and track small objects in challenging scenarios such as low-light and nocturnal settings.

The AI PTZ PLUS comes subscribed to an MQTT server that enables it to work seamlessly with other devices and sensors in an installation, including Internet of Things (IoT) sensors. Information shared with the camera via the MQTT broker will cause it to react in different ways including panning automatically to a detected entry/exit to provide visual confirmation that a person is authorised to be in the area and then sharing an email report back to operators.

The camera can also share information about an object detection event to the MQTT broker, to then trigger specific actions such as locking or unlocking a door, switching on lights or turning off the air conditioning. The ability to communicate and share data with other devices through MQTT transforms the AI PTZ PLUS camera from a security tool to a business intelligence solution.

“The AI PTZ PLUS range underpins Hanwha Vision’s continued commitment to advancing the way businesses operate, by delivering high-definition visual data and AI insights that extend beyond traditional security,” said Uri Guterman, Head of Product and Marketing at Hanwha Vision.
